Four Ways Out

This 1951 Italian crime film, directed by Pietro Germi, is an engaging, mostly successful combination of American film noir and Italian neorealism. Four nonprofessional burglars hold up a soccer stadium during a game; they separate as the police pursue them, and Germi follows their subsequent lives as they try to elude capture. Rather than turning this into a tight, fatalistic trap, like its more mechanistic American counterparts, Germi concentrates on character psychology, giving a good feel for why they committed the holdup (one is an embittered ex-soccer player, others are merely poor) and the pressure of being pursued. Coscripted by Federico Fellini, the film also features a taut performance by a young Gina Lollobrigida. 83 min.
